Four University of Melbourne academics have been recognised in the Australian Government’s Office for Learning and Teaching 2015 Victorian and Tasmanian Citations ceremony.

 

The Citations for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning recognise individuals and teams who have made a significant contribution to the quality of student learning over a sustained period, whether academic, general, or sessional staff, or associates. 

 

The 2015 recipients are:

 

  • Associate Professor Gelsomina Borromeo, Melbourne Dental School, for developing a greater understanding of special needs dentistry by students through innovative teaching approaches

  • Dr Dominique Hes, Melbourne School of Design, for inspiring students to be life-long learners connected to their environment through embedding sustainable architectural knowledge and action
